Panoramic filming for VR is taking the world by storm, and Chinese startups are vying for a piece of the action.

Shenzhen-based Insta360 officially launched their 360-degree panoramic camera Insta360 Nano at CES 2016 this month. The Insta360 team claims the Nano is the smallest panoramic camera on the market, allowing users to attach it to a smartphone for 360 ° panoramic video.
